You may have been ignoring that small leak or shackle for far too long. The safety of your roof is improved by timely inspection of the exterior and interior areas, roof perimeter, and other regions such as drainage, penetrations, and joints.
Your roof will stay in good shape if you maintain it properly, ensuring that minor issues are addressed quickly and large problems are avoided.
Defends Against Moisture
When a roof leaks, the leaks usually go unnoticed for a long time. Before entering the house, the moisture is slowly absorbed by the insulation. The leak saturates the insulation over time, causing patches of leakage on the interior walls or roof.
Because wet insulation loses its thermal resistance, a wet roof can result in energy losses of up to 70%.
Roof inspections should be done twice a year, according to industry standards. However, any severe weather event, such as rain, hail, or a storm, necessitates immediate investigation.
Maintains the health of your drainage system
The connection between roof and drainage may not be obvious at first. It is, however, critical to comprehend the relationship between the two.
Storm damage and heavy rains have flooded the roof. Leaves, debris, and trash are trapped in the clogged water. The debris clogs the roof drainage system, allowing moisture and rot to enter. This problem goes largely unnoticed because it has no immediate consequences, but if left untreated, it can lead to serious rotting, corrosion, and mold growth.
Prevents Productivity Loss and Downtime
Commercial building owners must be concerned with productivity. It could be an office, a factory, or a storage facility. If the roof is not maintained on a regular basis, the entire structure may be damaged.
Man and machine productivity will both be hampered by a damaged business. It has the potential to cause incomparable delays and losses, lowering profitability. Preventive maintenance is critical for keeping a facility operational. It aids in the management of time and productivity.
Maintains the health of your roof
We frequently undervalue the importance of a sound and healthy roof. A beautiful home is enhanced by a healthy and sturdy roof.
The roof’s design and details corrode as a result of bad weather. If you don’t maintain your roof on a regular basis, the quality of it will deteriorate. As a result, make roof maintenance an annual or bi-annual habit to keep your home looking beautiful.
Prevents the need for a roof replacement before it is needed.
Over 80% of roofs are replaced prematurely because building owners believe their responsibilities end once the roof is installed.
A professional roofer’s preventive maintenance program can go a long way toward identifying common flaws in roof assembly and identifying problems before they cause further damage to your roof. In fact, compared to replacing a roof every 15-20 years, a roof maintenance program can save you up to 50% over the life of a 30-year roof.
